Australia has discovered a natural phenomenon that will affect the weather around the world and cause various anomalies and cataclysms, the press center of the Bureau of Meteorology of the Government of Australia reports.
"La Niña has become established in the tropical Pacific. The Bureau's ENSO Outlook has been raised to LA NIÑA. Climate models suggest this La Niña will be short-lived, persisting until the late southern hemisphere summer or early autumn 2022. La Niña events increase the chance of above average rainfall across much of northern and eastern Australia during summer," the message reads.
It is noted that the natural phenomenon of La Niña threatens the world with cyclones and floods. It will last until late summer or early fall.
La Niña will cause cold spells in Australia, Indonesia, and the west coast of South America, increase above-average rainfall during the summer in Australia, trigger hurricanes and snowstorms in the northern regions, and cause rainy winters in Europe.
The La Niña phenomenon is emerging off the coast of Australia for the second year in a row. This year, scientists predict that the phenomenon will be weaker than before.
